jackson made it through his first fancy dinner out
on the town with flying colors. we were a little nervous
when we saw the white table cloths & candles flickering...
the highlight of the meal was jackson laughing along
to our jokes and the banana cream malasadas. YUM!

malasadas with caramel sauce...and a sippy cup!

there were TONS of people there and
lots of local fruit, veggies, flowers, and treats to buy.
my favorite purchase was dave's "sin dawg" cinnamon bread.

we even ran into our friends the forrests at the market. lots of fun.
